Sony should further develop its software to compete with upcoming Note3 otherwise it's just another bigger screen Android phone.

The Cosmicist, 06 Aug 2013That guy is just ignorant. He's probably a jealous Samsung fanboy. Z Ultra has an IPS display ... moreI agree that the Xperia Z Ultra is an excellent device and its display is very good. However, AMOLED screens are not toys. They are very good displays. Both LCD and LED have their advantages and disadvantages.
I'm using this phablet for 5 days now, replace it with s3. What can i tell u is, this is a masive & decent phone, super quick, almost no lag, great hd screen, quality build, feel firm to hold, not plasticky like toys, reccomend to buy. No flash no problem, bcoz i'm using camera as a camera, not phone as a camera.
What's this noise all about?!! This is basically a tablet with call features so expecting flash is pure ignorance. If u don't like the beautiful screen, build quality, water proof, powerful processor and much more then DON'T BUY, plz stop discouraging others!!

Anonymous, 06 Aug 2013Why not buy Note 3 instead, like everyone else will? Beats a white screen m0ngo flashlight, yo... moreWhy note buy a Note 3? Because there are several MUCH more important features than the flash where this simply has the Note 3 beat six ways to Sunday.
The display. The Triluminos display is simply the best, most advanced display available. The quantum dot Triluminos technology not only makes sure the screen is bright with pure colors, but is also a more efficient display as well. AMOLED is simply inferior. Not to mention Z Ultra has a bigger display, so you'd be compromising in two ways.
Build quality. Enough said. Samsung wants you pay $650+ for a toy.
Processor. If the Note 3 uses the new Exynos Octa, then the Z Ultra will have a better, more efficient processor as well.
Anonymous, 06 Aug 2013Why not buy Note 3 instead, like everyone else will? Beats a white screen m0ngo flashlight, yo... moreI'm not buying Z Ultra either and no flash was a sour move to reduce the thickness maybe,all I meant was that you can have flashlight and white screen is as bright as an led and this also has a big screen. But it will drain the battery.
biki, 06 Aug 2013this flash lights neva make good pic in the dark. most times i take better pic in the dark wit... more90% of the time I use the LED light as a flashlight, not to actually flash photos. And I use my phone's light often enough to make this a very annoying omission.
Triluminous Display is much better in terms of viewing angles ,it has nicely saturated and natural colors and excellent contrast,the lack of flash and Non removable battery its lacks. Sony need to improve the battery, need to use removable battery.If use removable battery it will best for sony.
Anonymous, 06 Aug 2013Why not buy Note 3 instead, like everyone else will? Beats a white screen m0ngo flashlight, yo... moreForgot to say, if Note 3 will have a Google Play Edition then the advantage of Sonys UI disappears as well, at least for Americans.
NHZ, 06 Aug 2013Use white screen.Why not buy Note 3 instead, like everyone else will? Beats a white screen m0ngo flashlight, you know we had that with Galaxy S, you miss the Galaxy S with its crappy lowlight indoor photos and white screen flashlight? I sure dont. At parties it was always like "hey can you take a pic for me with your phone and bluetooth it to me so i can upload, because my phone is Galaxy S (or Z Ultra)".
Im a long time xperia user but no fanboy, have had other brands high end android phones as well and i have to admit i didnt like the Note 2 so much, but i liked the S4 so i still say Note 3 is the one to wait for here, it will have higher PPI, good cam, flash, bigger battery.
This time is not a good time to be Xperia supporter, we use xperia because we want a clean android experience and no bloat and still get everything we need, not because we are stupid enough to blindly buy whatever Sony throws at us. Its ok to use the head, not the heart, definite PASS on the Z Ultra.
this flash lights neva make good pic in the dark. most times i take better pic in the dark with no flash.good design by sony.the battery however is an issue which is serious. but maybe the soft ware will take care of that
all u smart people out there should know it by now that this phone actually a phablet(nah pretty much tablet) i mean look.let me give u genius some example. .xperia z zr flash included.htc one ,mini,max flash included.galaxy s4,mini other variant i can't remember it al but i think one of them name i don't know s4 aduserdisapoinment.but the bottom line is this, sony probably consider this piece of technology a tablet rather than a phone that is why no flash included.for instance, xperia tablet z have no flash, first nexus 7 have 1.2 (lol)XD for primary galaxy tab 3 well samsung doesn't have much efford in camera as its name suggested around 3 megapixel(rofl).and also one of the most important oem,apple again doesn't put much effort in tablet camera ipad 4 5mp while iphone 5 have 8mp.so please, if flash so important to u i suggest buying a flash light or for something easy to pocket like a low low i mean really low end nokia phone(u know those phone without color or something) which cost less than 50 buck.but if flash light really reallyyyy important i mean really imporrtannt like probably life saving than don't buy this phablet that pretty much a tablet u should consider buy both stuff that i listed above.good day to u gentlemen.peace out.XD
acx124, 06 Aug 2013What next Sony Xperia Z Ultra Pro 6.9" but still a phone. Sony has lost it with this one.... moreTriluminous is much better in terms of viewing angles ,it has nicely saturated and natural colors and excellent contrast,the lack of flash and battery may have been bad moves.
